Earlier this year, when New York Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul was frustrated with progressive Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg – one of many criminal justice reformers whose campaigns were funded by financiers and activists. billionaire George Soros – she sat him down for a serious talk.
Part of the problem is that Bragg has made it clear he won’t be enforcing many of the city’s laws after the 2021 election, as City Journal’s Thomas Hogan notes.
“Who went to jail spying on Bragg?” he wrote. “Almost no one. The only people Bragg recommends pre-trial detention and subsequent prison sentences are murderers, real shooters causing serious injuries – shooting 50 times down a busy street won’t gets you locked up if you don’t hit anyone – sex offenders and perpetrators of specific offenses like domestic violence or overt corruption”.
Those Chesa Boudin-esque policies clearly scare off the wealthier ZIP thieves in Manhattan, and for good reason.
As a result, Hochul met with Bragg to remind him that she had the right to dismiss people of lower office like him, and said that “her highest priority is to protect the safety of New Yorkers.”
Even Parkland Shooter’s Attorney couldn’t help but cry as the family told heartbreaking stories of what really happened that day.
“I reiterate my belief that safety and justice go hand in hand,” the governor said in a statement after the meeting.
A company is talking to. That’s what Alvin Bragg gets when he says he won’t enforce the law.
Meanwhile, when a similar Soros-funded prosecutor in Florida – Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren – announced that he would not be enforcing the law, GOP Governor Ron DeSantis not only fired him from office, but also fired him. expelled by the police. he.
What a difference a party makes.
On Thursday, DeSantis signed an executive order suspending Warren, whose county includes Tampa, on the grounds of “neglect of duty” and “incompetence.”
In his executive order, DeSantis noted that the state attorney had enacted policies in which he would not prosecute “certain criminal offenses, including trespassing on a place of business, disorderly conduct and disorderly conduct. , drunkenness and prostitution.”
However, as CNN noted, Warren’s removal was due to his refusal to enforce Florida’s law that bans abortions after 15 weeks and prohibits sex reassignment procedures for children.
And not only that, DeSantis sent law enforcement to kick the prosecutor out.

“Since the signing of this Executive Order, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by other law enforcement agencies as needed, has been requested to: (1) assist in the immediate transition. ie Andrew Warren from the Office of the State Attorney for the 13th Jud Justice Circuit of Florida, with only access to his personal belongings; and (ii) ensure that no files, papers, documents, notes, records, computers or removable media are removed from the Office of the Attorney General by Andrew Warren or any of his employees State for Florida’s 13th Circuit,” the executive order read.
DeSantis makes it clear that Andrew Warrens is not tolerated in Florida in the same way that Alvin Braggs is in New York.
“To take up a position where you have a veto over the laws of the state is unacceptable,” the governor — standing alongside law enforcement officials — told a news conference.

“The prosecutor, the state attorney in charge of this judicial matter, Andrew Warren, has publicly put himself above the law,” he said.
“In June 2021, he signed a letter saying he would not enforce any ban on transgender activity against minors… and most recently, after ruling Dobbs’ decision was made by the Supreme Court of the United States, he signed a letter stating that he will not enforce any laws related to the protection of the right to live in the state of Florida – and please note With you, we’ve had a ban on third-trimester abortions for a long time.”
“When you clearly violate your oath of office, when you flout the law, you have violated your duty, you have neglected your duties, and you are demonstrating incompetence,” DeSantis said. power to carry out those tasks. “And so today, we are suspending State Attorney Andrew Warren effective immediately.”
He made it clear that he would not idly threaten to suspend officials who chose which laws to enforce, in the same way that Hochul did with Bragg.
“We’ve seen all over this country, over the past few years, prosecutors determine on their own what laws they like and will enforce and which laws they don’t like and then don’t enforce,” DeSantis said. DeSantis said.
“Florida’s Constitution gives veto power to the governor, not to individual state attorneys general,” the governor said.
Warren, who was re-elected in 2020, “was one of many prosecutors supported in 2016 by groups backed by billionaire freelance investor George Soros,” The New York Times noted.
Soros’ movement to transform the American criminal justice system for the worse has continued.
At least one billionaire-backed DA has been eliminated by voters this year: the aforementioned Chesa Boudin, who was recalled by San Francisco voters fed up with his soft-to-crime policies.
Another, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, will know in the coming weeks if opponents have gathered enough signatures to put him on a recall ballot this November.
Warren, of course, claims this is to enhance DeSantis’ national reputation more than anything else.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, he said: “Today’s political stunt is an excessively illegal intrusion that continues to be a dangerous pattern as Ron DeSantis uses his position to further his ambitions. his politics”. “That is infuriating in the face of the voters of Hillsborough County, who twice elected me to serve them, not Ron DeSantis.”
In fact, they elected Warren to enforce the law. He said he wouldn’t, which was a blatant neglect of duty.
If suspending him increases the political visibility of Ron DeSantis, well, well. Instead of adopting the Kathy Hochul approach, he literally chased one of Soros’ pets.
We could use a few more of him.
